DADT’s Funeral March
More and more military figures are coming out to support the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. The latest is General Colin Powell in a admirable reversal of his former position.
“In the almost 17 years since the ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ legislation was passed, attitudes and circumstances have changed,” General Powell said in a statement issued by his office. He added: “I fully support the new approach presented to the Senate Armed Services Committee this week by Secretary of Defense Gates and Admiral Mullen.”
